Come for a walk with me!

I had a busy morning, as you can see. Mommy was nice enough to give me ear scratches.

Then she said the magic word. ARE YOU READY?ADVENTUREWALKOUTSIDE. I was on my feet and ready to go! I didn't know where I was going but I was READY! Please note, this is the same fence you saw the other day. This time, I am wearing my harness and leash, because well bred city dogs don't go leashless except in dog parks. ((Leashless dogs are one of Mommy's pet peeves.))

HA! The fence opened! Follow me! Adventure Awaits!

This is where we're going to start our adventure! This is the path that runs behind our house!
You get to it through a big hole in the fence. What? Oh, Mommy says it's not a hole, it's meant to be there. Whatever!

This is the path here. Do you see what's at the end of the path? YUP! PetSmart!

If you're all excited and you need to pee, that's ok. Plenty of trees to pee on along the way, as well as a hydrant.

And don't forget to poop and scoop please!
Wait for your person before crossing the street. It's a busy street, 6 lanes across. And remember to wait for the walk signal.
Then, if you're like me, you'll get your nails trimmed! Wait? MOMMY! Sigh. I guess it has to be done occasionally. I thought I was doing a good job of biting them down to a reasonable length. I guess not. Anyway, Mommy wasn't allowed to take pictures in the store, which is fine with me, but too bad for Mommy. She said I looked really pathetic when they were cutting my nails and I don't think I want you all seeing me like that. So it works out well for everyone but HER.

Don't forget to come by to my house after the walk. There's food and water to share!And that's it for me! I heard the magic adventure word whispered around for tomorrow. I'll keep you updated! Thanks for taking a walk with me. Lets do that again sometime! Sniff ya later!

Hi, Bolo!
Nice walkie! Not so sure about the end of the path! I don't enjoy getting my nails trimmed either!
We don't have Petsmarts here! My vet is the one who cuts my nails.
Kisses and hugs

Hi Bolo,

I've never been to a groomer' I don't know what it is like! All I know is that the only two humans who are allowed to clip my toenails are Mercury and Cameo.

Just can't trust any one else! It's Humano-Xenophobia I guess.
